BACKGROUND: To compare anterior segment biometric parameters between Caucasians and Chinese before and after laser peripheral iridotomy. DESIGN: Prospective clinical cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: Caucasian and Chinese primary angle-closure suspects. METHODS: Anterior segment optical coherence tomography images captured before and after laser peripheral iridotomy were analysed to measure anterior segment biometric parameters. Paired Student's t-tests were used for within-ethnic group comparisons. Univariate and linear mixed-effect regression models were used for between-ethnic group comparisons. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Angle opening distance, angle recess area, iris thickness, iris curvature, an..View full abstract
